I am fortunate enough to own an Ipad. I use my ipad to check my twitter feed as I monitor the startup and tech world as part of my day-to-day activities. Knowing what’s going on in the tech and entrepreneur world is a must when you are launching a web startup!
I have been using Flipboard (http://flipboard.com/) on my ipad for three weeks now and would like to share here why I believe it is the ultimate tool for an entrepreneur.
My linkedin and twitter feeds send me dozens of news per hour. Even when you use an app like hootsuite, it is difficult to see what article you should read.
To overcome this difficulty of sorting out the great stuff from the noise, flipboard is a game changer.
If you don’t know how it works here is a summary:
Flipboard organises and displays your various feeds (twitter, linkedin, facebook etc..) as an interactive magazine.
Where it makes a huge difference is that it resolves all the urls included in the posts you receive and presents the first few lines. Thus you can choose to read the rest of what becomes an article. This is such a huge time saving app! No more time wasted clicking on the url and waiting to see what comes up. In Flipboard, it’s real time!
Moreover, flipboard enables you to “turn” pages as with a real magazine. This makes this such a comfortable read like in the old days!
I find this tool so good that it could become even a justification for buying an ipad altogether!blog comments powered by Disqus
